To respond to climate change, CIBIC is recycling plastic battles into bricks. Those bricks are being used to construct rain water harvesting tanks that store water in the rain season to be used for irrigation during dry season. allowing resilience and and continuity of food production and income during climatic hard times. This project is being tasted at CIBIC demonstration and training center. After successful complication it will be duplicated in schools, community gardens, households and it will serve mainly park edge dry land areas in Uganda. This kind of tank will consume 4000 battles, and store 20000 liters of water. This there fore means that it will put all the 4000 plastic battles to use for the next 50 years, saving people and wild life from diseases and floods and environment from global worming.
CIBIC is trying to adapt to climate change through mechanizing agriculture. CIBIC uses available water ponds to provide water to the vegetable fields in the dry season by using high horse power water pump using a complete sprinkler systems. The water pond therefore play a number of roles including raising fish to fight malnutrition and hunger and acting as reserver of water for irrigation in the dry season
Bee keeping project play key roles in mitigating climate chage. Bee provide polination of flowers which lead to growth of forest and biodiversity regeneration. This creates room for carbon sequenstration and micro climate ambient for life on earth of the living things. Bees provide honey and be wax. We use honey as medicine and food and wax has a number of important products like lip balms, body lotions and candles.
Verticle gardening of vegetables in sacks or lopes or spent plastic battles help to produce food without opening more land for agriculture thus allowing nature trees and plants to grow and sequester carbon and reduce global worming. This kind of project promote organic farming and back yard gardening allowing people with or without land continue accessing fresh food with no extra cost. When plastic battles are recycled for that use, they stay much longer in use and becomes less damaging to the environment. In these sack monds, we are growing Kale, lettuce, Cauliflowers, Tomatoes, Green peppers and cabbage, beans and red cabbage.
